Now we need to actually run the updated script on Wikimedia wikis. We should also cherry-pick the patch for populateRevisionLength.php to REL-1.31 as we did for the other patch.

GeoffreyT2000 added a comment to T189596: Run deleteAutopatrolLogs script for Wikidata (WMF).

Also, once the script has finished going all the way to 23 February 2018, we should also do another run of the script for autopatrol entries from 23 February 2018 to 5 April 2018, as well as those old ones that still have 'log_action = patrol', with the information included in the log_params field instead.

GeoffreyT2000 added a comment to T189594: Create maintenance script to remove autopatrol actions from logging table.

For entries prior to April 2016, the script should check the log_params field to determine autopatrol status. It is absurd to kill all the manual patrol entries before then, because it would give the incorrect impression that the log has never existed prior to April 2016. Only autopatrols should be killed off. Otherwise, the manual patrols prior to April 2016 should be moved to a temporary "backup" table that will then be remerged back to the original logging table.

GeoffreyT2000 added a comment to T152346: Separate log action for moves suppressing redirects.

@MGChecker Well, the same problem would also occur with patrol log entries as well. If you think that this isn't a good idea, then probably T27799 shouldn't have been a good idea either, then. But that was already fixed for newer log entries. Too late to worry about that, sorry. A task similar to T136493 will have to be created for fixing older move log entries.

GeoffreyT2000 added a comment to T185167: Add a "Reset parent IDs" checkbox to the undelete interface.

The following 2 examples show that using the parent id from the archive table might be a problem in the case of selective undeletion: revision 821925874 in the history of Kurdish National Congress and revision 435909482 in the history of The Strange Familiar (which was actually originally part of "User:Lotsamuzak101/The Strange Familiar"). They look like they are new-page creations, but they do not actually show the "N" mark when viewing the user's contributions page. Their parent ids are actually 821819956 and 435904177 respectively (which you can find out by using exportation). Those two ids will display an error when you try to view them. Perhaps, in the mean time, we should add a maintenance script to change the parent ids for all revisions with "broken" parent ids to zero. Then they will show the "N" mark in the user's contributions page.

I have changed the proposed default checked status to "unchecked" instead to match the default for the "Assign edits to local users where the named user exists locally" checkbox in Special:Import. In general, resetting may only be necessary in the case of selective undeletion, when one of the ar_parent_id values might be an unselected revision that will still remain in the archive table after undeletion.

GeoffreyT2000 added a comment to T185167: Add a "Reset parent IDs" checkbox to the undelete interface.

Whether to reset parent ids or not depends on the scenario. When undeleting pages that have been deleted and recreated several times, it might be better to leave the parent ids for the recreations as zero, but when doing history splits or merges, the better option is to reset the parent ids. The checkbox should be based on judgement, just like the "Assign edits to local users where the named user exists locally" checkbox when doing an import.

@Lahwaacz I have fixed the description to clarify the meaning. I mean the previous revision by id (usually also by timestamp, but not always).

GeoffreyT2000 added a comment to T183375: Use ar_parent_id on undeletion.

Actually, what used to happen is that the rev_parent_id was automatically determined based on comparison of the rev_id values, which usually produced a nonzero value. Now the problem seems to be partially solved, but see T185167 for adding something to the undelete interface to mimic the old behavior.

GeoffreyT2000 added a comment to T162846: FuzzyBot incorrectly shown as blocked on translatewiki.net.

Looking at the blocklist, there are 11 rows all by Jon Harald Søby from 2008. To completely get rid of all the rows, we need to try unblocking 11 more times. I suspect that all 15 users blocked by Jon Harald Søby on 9 July 2008 were merged into FuzzyBot by Nike the following day (the actual information is hidden from the log entries because of the use of RevisionDelete by the same admin). If so, then the rows must have came from blocks of users who originally had other usernames but were later merged into a single username.

With the actor table, T27377 will need to be updated. This means that we'll then have 'af_actor', 'afh_actor', and 'afl_actor' instead of 'af_user', 'af_user_text', 'afh_user', 'afh_user_text', 'afl_user', and 'afl_user_text'.
